Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg is confident Kinect will sell. The man thinks it’ll sell more then Wii did at its launch four years ago, after all.

“We haven’t given any projections beyond this holiday, but this will be the largest launch we’ve ever had as a business,” he said, speaking in a Eurogamer interview.

“We’ll definitely sell more sensors than the Wii sold when it launched or the Xbox 360 sold when it launched.”

Greenberg said back at TGS that the motion camera will sell 3 million units by the end of the year, with Kinect boss Kudo Tsunoda quoted as saying it’ll “blow away” sales of iPad.

Kinect launches next Thursday in the US. It releases here in the UK and Europe on November 10.
